Do people not reply to old threads on DU3?
I hadn't had the opportunity to look at the thread since I posted it, and it got a few more replies. But whenever I post on an existing thread, it seems like nobody replies except maybe the person I posted to... so I just posted some replies to them and I haven't heard back, the thread is dead... and it makes me think of whether that was always the case, way back in 2005 or whenever. Like when I go to a lot of threads you see a million people replying to one another.

1. Can't speak to DU3. I don't remember a lot of posting at old threads at CU2.
As far as a million people replying, I am not sure as many people post on DU3 as posted at DU2, expecially before Obama was President.

Democrats were more unified and DU2 was a haven when Bush was in office. After Obama was elected--even during the height of the primary-- there was a lot of division and no more haven. Unfortunately, I did not start posting at DU2 until Obama won the primary.

Not taking anything at DU3 personally is good advice.

As far as who replies, the only person who knows of a new post on a thread is the person to whom you posted.

3. Again, though. If you google, I am sure you could find news stories to support
your statements to your friend.

I think those would be more convincing anyway, than agreement from anonymous supporters he does not know.
